Pinterest is, even after all these years, still probably one of my favorite websites.  There are tons of great DIY ideas, tantalizing recipes, and just plain pretty stuff.  There are enough projects there to keep me busy for probably the rest of my life.

Easy Kids DIY Hair Accessory Organizer for hair bows, headbands and hair clips.  No tools and no glue gun needed!  Done in under 15 minutes.

While I usually have the intent of making each recipe or completing each project that I pin, I do keep one board of pins that are for more immediate inspiration.  Things I know, for sure, that I want to try – whenever I get some elusive “free time”.  This kids DIY hair accessory organizer is one of those things.

I pinned one a year ago, so I failed on the “immediate” part of the inspiration.  But aside from how long it took me to try one, I have to say that I think my “Pinterest remake” turned out pretty okay.  Bubbles is happy with it, and to be honest, that’s mostly what matters to me.

DIY Hair Accessory Organizer

Supplies Needed

DIY Hair Accessory Organizer supplies - no tools or glue gun needed! Completed project in under 15 minutes.

Small fabric-covered bulletin board (or a small board you’ve covered with fabric, yourself)
Fabric ribbon in desired color or print
Sticky back Velcro dot fasteners
Metal hinged O-rings (if desired)

Tutorial

  • I used a board that was already covered in purple fabric, so that made the process even easier.  But if you can’t find one to match your decor, you can wrap a bulletin board or piece of plywood in your fabric print of choice, and then staple it down.
  • Next I laid out the ribbon over the board until I had a mix of rows, ribbon types and spacing that worked for our needs.
  • Once you have the layout you want, cut the ribbon with enough overhang to wrap around the back of the board, plus an inch or so.
  • Use a pencil to make a small mark on the back of the board, where the ribbon ends.  Place a Velcro dot over each mark.
  • Place the other half of the “dot” on the one you’ve already stuck to your board.
  • Lay your board fabric-side down on top of the ribbons you have laid out.  Pull each end around the back snugly, and then press the ribbon down on the sticky dot.
  • Flip your board over – you’re done!

Now that you have your ribbons secured, you can add your kiddo’s hair accessories.  I used wider Minnie Mouse print ribbon at the top and bottom, which is a little more sturdy for holding larger items like headbands.  In the middle I used a pretty purple ribbon that was a little thinner, that I could use to clip barrettes.

We also have quite a few hair elastics, so I attached some hinged o-rings that will let me corral them.  You can either put the elastics directly on the o-ring and attach to the ribbon, or put all your smaller items in a plastic bag and attach them with the rings that way.

You could easily do this using a glue gun instead of the sticky dots.  By using the dots, though, I could more easily re-position the ribbons if needed, plus it makes it really easy to change it up over time.  If we repaint, or if Bubbles decides she wants a My Little Pony-themed one instead of Minnie Mouse, I can reuse some of the supplies without everything shredding from peeling off the glue.

Completing this easy project in under 15 minutes has inspired me to take on even more Pinterest remakes in the near future.  Some of my other blogger buddies are taking the Pinterest remakes challenge, too.  Please be sure to check out their awesome projects and recipes – each with their own twist on the original.

Have you tried a Pinterest remake? What did you make?
